That is a great die cast Buick.  Where did you find it?  

I had seen them some time ago.  I just Googled Panamericana Buick and clicked on the images link tnen scrolled through the pictures.  Find the picture and tap it.  It should take you to the seller.

 

There is also some footage on YouTube of a 55 Buick on the course during a later time period.  The body of the car may be a 55 Buick, but that ain't no 322 nailhead providing the power.  I thought I read somewhere that the engine was a NASCAR prepped 440 Mopar.

 

 

Looks like a ton o' fun.

I'm familiar with the 54 Buick and I believe it was running a Chevy 454?  Not sure.  There was two as shown on Youtube.

From some things that I've read, the Buick grill had the least coefficient of drag.  What engine was in the car is the question.  50:1 odds it was a 355 small block Chevrolet.
